Yep, word is that Dark Knight scribe David Goyer is planning on taking H.G. Wells' The Invisible Man to some pretty extreme places that have yet to be explored. In a recent conversation with MTV, Goyer discussed some of the specific ways his vision will differ from the adaptations we've seen in the past, not the least of which is giving the film a wilder steampunk vibe. About his Invisible man Goyer said: My take is kind of an extrapolation. It actually deals with a nephew of the first character. It’s got some of the characters from the H.G. Wells book, but it’s kind of a continuation... It kind of crosses a lot of genres. It’s very steam punk... I don’t want to give too much away, but I took what being invisible could mean to the next logical extreme... We do a lot of crazy things in it that are sort of far beyond what anyone’s done with it yet. So there you have it. Perhaps I should have been more receptive to yet another Invisible Man adaptation after all. It certainly seems like Goyer's got some interesting ideas he's knocking around anyway.
